VOTING IS NOW OPEN

It may be an honor just to be nominated, but the writer's ego is a fragile thing; do your part to patch mine, by voting for My Urban Kvetch and JDaters Anonymous in the Jewish and Israel Blog Awards.

The first round of polls is open until Sunday "late morning, Israel time."

The details:

You can vote once every 24 hours, so bookmark the site and visit it to make a daily choice.

Most of the categories have been split into two parts because there were so many nominees; the top 6 in each part will head to the finals. This means that if I do well enough in the qualifying rounds, there will be another announcement here next week, urging you to go back and vote for me again in the finals...

As a reminder, I'm nominated in several categories, so make sure to view the whole list before you vote.

Of course, once you get to the IsraellyCool homepage, you may see other names that ring bells--a substantial number of the other nominees are also on my blogroll and in my rolodex. We're all winners, here, really. Vote your conscience; you'll do the right thing.

Plus, if you vote for me, I'll make sure there's a frozen yogurt machine in the cafeteria.

Dear Esther,

I have seen the future and it is this:

UrbanKvetch vs. DovBear in the no-holds-barred-finals of the humor category.

May the best, ahem, man win.

Love
DovBear

After long and careful consideration, having weighed all of the issues and taking a personal inventory of the principles that mean the most to me, I have decided ... to vote for you. ;)

Thanks, all.

Madge, glad you're on board. It wouldn't be the same ride without "another Esther" on board.

DovBear, you pipsqueak upstart who accused me of Satanism, I wish you all the best. Truly. Let there be no hatred between us because of a competition.

And C, tee hee. You da woman, so thx for your support. Hopefully, will be able to schedule time to appropriately thank you in person.

Cheers all, and thanks for your support. While you're there, check out some of the other nominated blogs. Many of them are very good, so enjoy this as a "best of the Jewish blogosphere" list...

Is there a category for "Best blogger editing on someone else's blog?"

Dear Esther, bride of Satan,

You put me on the map. Perhaps, 80 percent of my first few dozen comments were from you. You gave me the confidence to continue.

Then you went on to greener gardens - which will make kicking your butt extra sweet.

Please know I hold you in the deepest regard.

XXOO
DovBear

UPDATE: I'm not kicking anyone's butt. Protien Wisdom has me in a choke hold. Readers of the kvetch. Help set up the dream-match. Esther's won group B, handily. Help me win Group A. [Then I'll appeal to the readership of some other blog to put me over the top. Oops did I say that out loud?]

You're welcome, Esther.. Glad I can help. :)
